M12 plug on M12 socket

Do you need a lot of power? The PVC power cable, assembled on both sides with M12L connectors, supplies your devices and machines with high voltages and currents in no time at all. The overmoulded connectors provide a secure hold – even during continuous movements in the cable chain or torsion applications.

  • Ready-to-connect hookup power assembly for time-saving installation
  • Proven cable successfully tested for over 5 million bending cycles in cable chains and >2 million torsion cycles.
  • Cable design allows rotations with torsion angles of up to ± 180°/m.
  • Connectors are mechanically robust, insensitive to shock and vibration and therefore extremely reliable, thanks to the double overmoulding.
  • Mechanical L-coding of the mating face prevents mismating with mating connector.

Application range

  • For connecting the power supply of devices and machines with higher voltages and currents.
  • Cable design enables flexible, constantly flexing use in moving machine parts and in the cable chain.
  • Also suitable for power supply in the PROFINET network (M12L is considered the standardised power interface there).
  • Usable in dry, damp and wet environments.
  • Suitable for medium mechanical stress.
